PhD Career Resources

This webpage serves as a curated collection of online PhD career resources tailored for Ph.D. professionals seeking to transition from academia to alternative career paths. The featured resources encompass podcasts, websites, and newsletters. I highly encourage leveraging these resources to broaden your perspective and discover rewarding career opportunities beyond the academic realm. Notably, many of these valuable resources were discovered through networking with others.

Why Do PhDs Need Online Career Resources?

While university-based resources may be valuable, online platforms outside academia often provide a wider range of information, advice, and tools tailored to the specific needs and interests of PhD holders seeking non-academic careers. These resources offer practical guidance, industry-specific insights, and networking opportunities, empowering PhDs to navigate the job market effectively and pursue diverse career paths aligned with their goals and aspirations.
